Home Grown

Hi Everyone

At the start of the year, the kids and I decided that we were going to have a little project together. This project was growing our own veg. Not as easy as you would think.

The potatoes were amazing and we had so many that I haven't had to buy any in ages. We don't have a greenhouse, so we decided to grow the tomatoes in the conservatory, which was ok to begin with but for ages there were no tomatoes on the plants. So we decided to put them outside and within a week we had loads and still have loads growing even though it is nearly October.

The lettuces, peppers and cucumbers were a no show as they were eaten by every slug in the garden. However as you can see the carrots are amazing and there are plenty to go around to all the family and friends.
I would love to hear about projects that you have attempted this year.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and come back to visit my blog soon.
